The Status Quo

With a solid CRM strategy and custom CRM deployment, businesses can streamline their sales processes and operate in a more structured way. CRM analytics enables businesses to measure and optimise sales performance, maximise sales conversions and deliver a better sales experience.

Businesses often operate with sales processes that have organically evolved over time and are not engineered for efficiency. Sales processes that rely on tools that are not integrated with the CRM system often require manual intervention, taking valuable time away from closing deals.

To achieve consistent growth, businesses need an equal focus on sales and operations but this becomes challenging when sales are supported by a patchwork of sales processes and tools. Many operate an imbalance and spend more time on serving customers at the expense of sales, sacrificing growth as a result.

Undefined, unstructured and burdensome sales processes inevitably result in inefficient operations. This can result in missed targets, constrained growth and, in extreme cases, reduced headcount which places further pressure on the business.

The business benefit of a robust CRM strategy driven sales programme

Pick up where you left off

Accessible, well structured CRM programmes enable businesses to remain organised and progress sales in as little as 30 minutes a day.

Sales task reminders

Simplify sales admin with a well configured CRM platform that automatically reminds users of the next task required to progress each deal.

Automate nurturing

Nurture sales prospects at scale, with automated emails that educate, inform and build trust, thereby shortening the sales cycle.

Businesses often attempt to scale their sales via in-person events like conferences, expos, trade shows, and networking.

Events are great lead generation activities but they are difficult to scale and hard to measure as compared to their digital equivalents. Digital sales activities can be measured and optimised, enabling businesses to improve performance over time, and reducing wasted time on activities that don’t work. Digital sales tactics such as outreach, social sales and lead generation can give businesses exponential market reach.

Our approach to CRM strategy

Build a predictable, repeatable and scalable system which automates lead capture and streamlines the lead nurturing process. Sell while you sleep and reduce the work required to close a sale using CRM and sales automations that improve sales conversion rates.

Develop market insight

Analyse the market and build buyer personas for target customers that define their pain points, issues, needs, sales barriers and drivers.
Build CRM content
>>
Leverage this insight and the CRM blueprint to build effective sales messages and CRM content such as brochures, landing pages and email scripts to fuel the CRM system.
Configure and deploy the CRM tech
>>
Select the CRM vendor and all related sales technology tools. Configure and integrate all tools with the CRM platform as per the CRM blueprint. Deploy the CRM and all related sales tools to scale sales.
Manage the CRM system
